Radical Candor – Kim Scott

Recommended by Glenn Elliott

A culture of open and honest communication is proven to add bottom line value to a business. Without a culture of speaking up, innovation is stifled, without a culture of respectful challenge and debate, strategy and execution becomes a dulled function of the hierarchy – those with positional power speak, those with less follow.  But when many people shy away from difficult conversations and giving honest feedback, how do you create a culture where people routinely challenge each other directly? Kim Scott, from her pioneering work at Google, shares a practical formula based on a teachable 2×2 grid and straightforward methodology.

This book is a must for any manager, leader or entrepreneur. Reading this book will help you to lead a team to do their best work and build better relationships.

Kind Scott is former CEO coach at Dropbox and Twitter and was an executive at Google and Apple.
